FEARLESS amputee veteran Richard Hunt took part in a skydive to raise money for charity along with his brave 17-year-old daughter.

The duo plummeted 13,000ft to raise money for the Queen Alexandra Hospital Home charity, which provides nursing and rehabilitation for disabled ex-servicemen and women.

Mr Hunt, 44, from Portchester, is ex Royal Navy and lost his leg because of an injury he sustained in service.

He said he was proud to take part in the skydive alongside his daughter Ya Xian, pictured left, and with 60 others, and that he now intends to do another skydive in September.

The group skydive raised more than £40,000 for the charity.
